Date
Thursdays, September 22 - November 10
Time
1 - 2:30 p.m. ET

From a collection of colonies huddling the eastern seaboard, the United States expanded across an entire continent within a few decades. We will explore the events, and people, that made the greatest contribution to what became known as “manifest destiny”. How the vast spaces filled up with new residents, the impact on Native Americans, and the issue of slavery will engage us.
